Meadowlark’s Dynasty collection builds on its previous two, Ritual and Veni Vedi Vici, taking the inspiration from an ancient Russian monarch, traditional Indian bridal adornment and grunge–luxe supermodel nostalgia, says the company.
   The company had already made headlines for its distinctive, high-impact jewellery with Rihanna modelling its pieces in the September 2014 issue of W.
   There’s more than a nod to the body-piercing æsthetic: among the items are headpieces, nose chains, septum and lip rings, stud and hoop earrings, rings and necklaces, all taking strong forms such as spears, thorns and discs, and encrusted with diamonds, emeralds and rubies.
   The earrings are sold individually, allowing for maximum customization.
   â€˜We took the idea of ’90s piercing jewellery and put a luxe, grown-up twist on it using silver, gold and diamonds.’ says designer and co-founder Claire Hammon. She says the collection is ‘for the brave,’ suiting what the company calls a ‘modern anarchist queen’ who wishes to defy the status quo.

Supermodel Kate Moss fronts the Kérastase Paris campaign for its new Couture Styling Collection, commemorating one year of the range.
   Couture Styling is Kérastase’s luxury styling collection, with new products added to its portfolio for US release in summer 2014: Laque Noire, a micro-diffusion finishing spray; V.I.P., a texturizing spray; and Baume Double Je, a defining balm.
   The campaign featuring Moss will roll out this season, inspired by what the company calls a “perfectly imperfect” look made famous by French actress Brigitte Bardot, and by the Studio 54 era.
   Moss’s hair was styled by Kérastase artistic director Luigi Murenu. Says Murenu, ‘The Brigitte Bardot “mussed-up” ’60s look is both quintessentially French and completely universal. Kate Moss is the Brigitte Bardot of today. She epitomizes the freedom that every woman wants.’
   Norwegian photographer Sølve Sundsbø shot the campaign in Paris.
   The Kerastase Couture Styling Collection can be purchased through Kérastase salons in the US (see www.kerastase-usa.com/salon-locator for locations), and online at www.kerastase-usa.com.

Hairstylist George González gives blow-out tips for Cindy Crawford’s look on Oprah’s Lifeclass

Lucire staff/8.28

Pin It

Hairstylist George González, of George the Salon, worked on supermodel Cindy Crawford’s hair for her guest appearance on Oprah’s Lifeclass on April 2.
   Says González, ‘I made sure to round brush starting at the bottom to build weight. Then, I finished the blowout by styling the sections at the top to minimize volume. The result is soft and natural.’
   His tips for blowout include:

  • • hot tools are often the number-one culprit for frizz, especially if a heat protectant is never used while styling;
  • • for a blowout, women often put the drier directly against the hair because they think that’s the way to get it straight. This why there is damage and frizz, especially when paired with a metal brush;
  • • the worst thing we can do is use old blow-driers or not cleaning out their air vents. Due to lint or hair build-up, air cannot flow through; therefore, the pressure goes down and too much heat is used to style;
  • • if one part does not look good, spray it with water and redo it. Never keep going over it dry. This will make it worse. Not re-wetting hair could be the reason most women have bad hair days, because they try too hard and then over-dry their hair;
  • • a dusting of dry shampoo at your roots will really kick-start the staying power of your blowout;
  • • to further preserve your style, sweep tresses up and use large bobby pins to create loosely sculpted pin curls before you go to bed. Four to six large sections will do the trick. When you release and shake out in the morning, you feel like you just left your stylist’s chair.

   González’s salon prides itself on the idea of balance, and as part of its social responsibility efforts, helps victims of domestic violence.

Designer L’Wren Scott, 49, found hanged in apartment—death treated as suicide

Lucire staff/18.03

Above Mick Jagger and L’Wren Scott pictured last November.

Fashion designer L’Wren Scott, 49, has been found dead in her Manhattan apartment, with her death being treated as suicide by New York police.
   Scott was found hanged by her assistant, whom she had texted earlier in the day to go to the apartment, at 10 a.m. EDT.
   No suicide note was found, according to police, whose investigations continue.
   Her company was in millions of pounds of debt. The firm, LS Fashion Ltd., had a loss of £3·5 million, and it had been run at a loss for several years before. Some £4·6 million was owed to creditors, with £1 million due within a year. LS Fashion Ltd. had £1·1 million of assets.
   Scott’s autumn–winter 2014–15 show at London Fashion Week had been cancelled. Late last year, Scott launched a line in collaboration with Banana Republic.
   She was born Luanna Bambrough in Utah. Having reached 6 ft in height by age 12, she learned to make her own clothes as she struggled to find anything that fitted her. She modelled in Paris before heading to Los Angeles to become a stylist and costume designer. Her label started in 2006.
   Her designs were a favourite of this publication, and US First Lady Michelle Obama, and celebrities such as Angelina Jolie, Amy Adams, Penélope Cruz and Christina Hendricks were among her fans.
   A spokesman for the British Fashion Council said, ‘We are deeply saddened at the news of L’Wren Scott’s tragic death.
   â€˜She was an iconic woman who inspired so many, and a designer whose contributions to the fashion industry were both extraordinary and unique.
   â€˜She will leave behind an exceptional legacy, however we are so incredibly proud to have had her in our midst.’
   She was the long-term girlfriend of the Rolling Stones’ Sir Mick Jagger. They had been together for nearly 13 years and Jagger had spoken about her fashion collections in the past.
   Jagger had arrived in Australia for the Rolling Stones’ tour there, which may be cancelled.
   Bianca Jagger, Sir Mick’s ex-wife, led tributes, saying, ‘Heartbroken to learn of the loss of the lovely and talented L’Wren Scott. My thoughts and prayers are with her family. May she rest in peace.’
   Supermodel Naomi Campbell wrote on WhoSay: ‘I am deeply shocked and devastated by the news. L’Wren was someone I knew since I was 17. We travelled the world together many times. L’Wren was someone I always loved. She was the epitome of elegance and femininity yet still had a girlish quality. I will miss her honesty and I will miss her friendship. My heart goes out to Mick and all who loved her and were loved by her. May she Rest in Peace.’
   Actress Nicole Kidman issued a statement, reading, ‘Nicole and L’Wren were close friends for 25 years. She is heartbroken and in shock right now, and unable to say anything.’

Kate Moss returns to front Stuart Weitzman’s spring 2014 campaign

Supermodel Kate Moss has continued her connection to Stuart Weitzman, this time modelling for its spring 2014 advertising campaign with images by Mario Testino.
   The chief image is simple, shot in black and white and with Moss donning Stuart Weitzman’s latest minimalist heel, called ‘The Nudist’. Her make-up has a nude look, and her one-piece swimsuit is also basic, in a single, dark shade. The Nudist design, features an 11 cm heel, in either black or Pan goose-bump nappa, with a leather footbed and sole. The company calls the sandal design ‘as close to bare as a fashionable foot can get.’
   Moss débuted as the face of Stuart Weitzman for its spring 2013 campaign, chosen for her recognition as ‘a global style icon’.
   The campaign will roll out in the US, Italy, France, England, Canada, Dubai, Germany, Spain and across Asia. Outdoor advertising will appear in Los Angeles, New York, Miami, Milano, Paris and Hong Kong. Its website will feature video and additional creative.
   Moss has appeared in campaigns this year for St Tropez and Rimmel, among others, and continues to attract international brands. She was honoured last month at the British Fashion Awards for her 25-year career.

Supermodel Kate Moss to receive British Fashion Awards honour to mark 25 years of influence

Suzy Menkes isn’t the only woman getting a special award from the British Fashion Council, supermodel Kate Moss will receive one, too.
   Her Special Recognition Award at the British Fashion Awards is presented to mark her 25 years in the business and her continued influence on the industry, said the Council.
   Croydon-born Moss was discovered in 1988 while on holiday by Sarah Doukas, founder of Storm Model Management. Then 14, she and her family were returning from a holiday in the Bahamas and were awaiting their homeward flight at JFK.
   While considered a supermodel in the original sense of the word—her contemporaries were Cindy Crawford, Linda Evangelista, Claudia Schiffer and Christy Turlington—Moss was a contrast, having a more child-like, waif look. Opponents called it ‘heroin chic’.
   Moss received some notoriety for her skinny frame after appearing on the cover of The Face in 1997. She then modelled in advertisements for Calvin Klein underwear and appeared nude for the Calvin Klein fragrance, Obsession. She has been immortalized in sculpture in two sculptures by Marc Quinn, the first in 2006 called Sphinx, followed by a second in 2008, in gold, called Siren.
   Moss will appear in Playboy’s 60th anniversary issue in January, and a preview image, shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, has already been released.
   She has been romantically linked to Johnny Depp, Jefferson Hack (the father of her first child), Billy Zane, Leonardo di Caprio, Mark Wahlberg, Daniel Craig, Jake Chapman, Mario Sorrenti, Evan Dando, Jesse Wood, Antony Langdo, and Pete Doherty. In 2011, she and Hince tied the knot.
   Through the years, Moss has defied expectations, shattering the predictions of those who believed that models would only have a certain, limited working life, and recovering from a tabloid exposé about cocaine use that could have permanently damaged a lesser model’s career. She has shrewdly created her own brand, licensing it in co-branding situations, most notably with Topshop. She has her own collections with Longchamp, Fred and Rimmel. And she continues to endorse products and serve as the face of international brands, thanks in part to her work ethic and knowledge, and to a unique look.
   The Council calls her ‘fearless and intuitive’ when choosing her projects. Others sought by the BFC for comment included photographer Mario Testino, with whom Moss has collaborated numerous times, who said, ‘Kate Moss has made many people dream. And not only people that look at fashion but those that create it as well. The moment she puts on an outfit, it takes another identity. She adds personality to fashion and I personally, can never get enough of her.’
   Donatella Versace said, ‘From the very beginning Kate was iconic; she never had to become a model. She has the same energy, the same seduction and the same wit—in front of the camera and with everyone, I love you Kate!’
   The BFC stated, ‘She has worked with every designer of note, including McQueen, Galliano, Marc Jacobs, Stella McCartney, Saint Laurent, Dior, Calvin Klein, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, and her editorial still sets the benchmark high in terms of sheer versatility, originality and its ability to communicate the aspirations and realities of many generations. Her work with Corinne Day at the age of 15 remains instrumental in shaping the face of the fashion industry, and Kate is synonymous with the spirit of British innovation.’
   It also notes that Moss is the most prolific Vogue cover girl, appearing on 34 covers for British Vogue alone. She now serves as a contributing fashion editor for the magazine, with her first story appearing in the spring.
   Moss won Model of the Year at the British Fashion Awards in 2006, and received the London 25 award at the same event in 2009.
   The British Fashion Awards, hosted by the BFC, takes place on December 2 at the London Coliseum. Nominees this year include Marc Jacobs, Anya Hindmarch, Victoria Beckham, Mary Katrantzou, Raf Simons, Nicholas Kirkwood and Cara Delevingne. Tickets are available through www.britishfashionawards.com/tickets. Lucire will have post-event coverage.

Cindy Crawford opens Omega’s newest boutique in Santiago

With Chile’s rise in international fashion, Omega has opened a boutique in the capital, Santiago, with its ambassador, supermodel Cindy Crawford, its guest of honour last week.
   The boutique, with a 10 m high façade, is in the Parque Arauco, one of the city’s largest shopping centres.
   Omega hosted an event at the Santiago Museum of Contemporary Art’s Quinta Normal Park site, with a dance display and a showing of offerings from its Constellation range.
   â€˜Our expansion in this dynamic region reflects the growing enthusiasm for luxury products in the Chilean market and shows that Omega’s sophisticated timepieces, innovative watchmaking and quality products resonate with Chileans,’ says Raynald Aeschlimann, Omega’s Vice President and International Director of Sales, Retail and Distribution.
   A later dinner also saw Crawford attend and give a speech about her involvement with Omega, which dates back to 1995. She also mentioned her involvement in the design of the earlier Constellation models.
   She wore the Constellation Quarter Moon, which débuted at the event. The watch features an 18 ct red gold case and an 18 ct red gold dial, accented with pearled white mother-of-pearl and 126 single-cut diamonds arranged in the shape of quarter moons. The bezel is paved with 32 full-cut diamonds, while the bracelet is also made of 18 ct red gold. It comes with a four-year warranty.
   Aeschlimann says, ‘Cindy has been promoting our products longer than any other of Omega’s ambassadors and she is a perfect representative for our brand. It has always been a pleasure working with her and her inspiration continues to be of great value to Omega.’
